Apple Pie Pancakes {Vegan}: Breakfast Of Champions

Good morning!

After a wonderful solid 8-hours of sleep last night, I woke feeling refreshed and ready to take the bull by the horns for a productive day.

But before the productivity kicked off, I was craving a hearty sweet breakfast… a breakfast that would fuel me to film 2 solid workouts, a to-do list a mile long, and still have energy to get some errands done.

Luckily, I was also in the mood to spend some time playing around in the kitchen. So glad I did!

I’m not a huge pie person, however I love spiced apples, especially fresh picked honey crisps.


We recently received some from a friend and I’ve been eating one every day but wanted to actually use them for cooking too.

These pancakes turned out amazing. If you’re waking up right now trying to decide what to make for the family this morning, make these.

You won’t disappoint!

Vegan Apple Pie Pancakes

Makes 1 big pancake


2 Tbsp chopped apple

1/4 Cup oats (I used gluten-free)

1/4 Tsp baking powder

1/3-1/2 Ripe banana

1/4 Cup almond milk (or water)

1 Tsp chia seeds*

1 Tsp apple pie spice (or make your own)

1/2 Tsp honey (or maple syrup)


1. In a small bowl mix together everything except the apples. Allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes to allow the chia to soak up moisture.

2. Blend it all up (I use a Magic Bullet) until smooth, and stir in apple chunks.

3. Pour it on a hot skillet (Med heat) for 3 minutes or until the edges start to rise and small bubbles pop up. Flip and coon an additional 1-2 minutes.

4. Remove from heat and top with a drizzle of honey, dollop of nut butter, or sautéed apple slices (or all 3 as I did).

5. For the apples, I used the same skillet. Once the pancake was removed, just toss in apple slices and cooke on each side for 30 seconds or so (they cook really fast). Sprinkle with cinnamon and a dash of sugar and add to pancake!

*If you’re not vegan, you can substitute 1 egg white for the chia seeds.


While I savored each bite, I sipped on an apple spiced iced coffee… Recipe coming soon!

Charleston’s Running Scene

Now, excuse me as I have head out to take my grandmother grocery shopping.

But before I do, here’s a picture I took while out running yesterday, which was my last long run before my half!


Posted on Instagram! Do you follow me?

Each time I look at it, I can’t help but think about all the things I’m grateful for. So I am asking you to do the same!

 Tell me one thing you’re grateful for today….

I’m grateful for you, my blog friends who allow me to share my life, my loves, and my passions with you each day.

    Oh my gosh Kindal. I made this dang pancake recipe this morning. Minus the apple stuff. You still have me hooked on these things! But seriously you should make the pancake and then just spread on a little bit of cashew butter and a little bit of pumpkin butter. It is delicious. It will rock your socks! And today I will be grateful for you! You have pushed me in so many aspects. I was just telling my friend yesterday that I don’t think I would have done this personal trainer certification if we hadn’t had that conversation just before I moved where you were like, be a personal trainer. You’ve helped me put my life in the direction it is going. Which is def. a positive direction. You should feel accomplished, because your hard work and determination has made the difference in at least one persons life, and that’s me!

    • OMG, that sounds awesome. I need to stop by Trader Joes and get some pumpkin butter! Though apple butter would rock too!

      You’re amazing Kim, I am so proud of you. I need you to move back right now to Charleston and be a trainer here. Yup, that’s what has to happen. But seriously thank you so much. It’s amazing women like you that make me love what I do. I’m honored, but have to say you deserve all of the credit. You took the action, and did something. Wow.

  • What half are you doing??? Those pancakes look SO yum!!!! I love cooked apples. Just amazing

    • I’m doing the Mini Marathon in MBeach. You?

  • KarenG in France

    I am grateful for living near in very big park / woods where I can run – being able to work out outside is so wonderful !

    • That’s a good one! Love outdoor training.

  • Thanks for the recipe! We have two apple trees and had major bounty last year. This year, however, a late frost thwarted any apples at all. So sad! Maybe next year :).

    • Wow, I would love apple trees! I’m officially jealous.

  • Those pancakes sound really good and easy to make! Kinda jealous of your magic bullet. I love all the apples in the stores now, to me apples are better than pumpkin ;).

    I love the picture from your run, you are so right that it never gets old here because it’s beautiful. I’m starting back this week (only ran 2x since my full but I have done a lot of yoga. I really just needed a break, bc I kept getting sick, so I decided to just take some time off).

    • They are really easy and tasty! Apples are my favorite too!

  • These look so good! I definitely agree about not being much of a pie person, but I do also love spiced apples. They are just so reminiscent of fall comfort.
